C’mon really? Final Score: 3-2 Jets in OT.
My PVR is so full of shows that I’m behind on. I have hours and hours of TV to catch up on. This dog shit run of Oilers games is cutting into my love of enjoyable television, and completely removing happiness from my TV watching experience altogether. Do you know how many episodes of Walking Dead that I have to watch? I finally got caught up on Sons of Anarchy. Frankly, there’s so much to watch that I don’t appreciate you wasting my waking TV hours with losses. Don’t win games for me, Oilers, I’ve already decided that you hate me. But for the love of Gord, will you win one for my love of watching TV!? No? Okay then.
Tonight’s game was another edition of the ongoing Moral Victories saga that is the Oilers rebuild. The Oilers had a 2-1 lead with 5 minutes left to go in the 3rd period and blew it. Once again, the Oilers were unable to close out a game when they had the chance to do that. In Nashville, Jordan Eberle couldn’t score on a penalty shot in overtime. In St. Louis, the Oilers blew a 3rd period lead. Tonight was just another version of the same terrible movie. We’re basically watching the Hangover 3 out there. At first, moral victories are okay, but after 11 straight losses this is getting tiring to watch.
THE BRIGHT SIDE
- Teddy Purcell is still rocking a moustache. If he plans to keep it until the Oilers win a game, he may be sporting that stache for the rest of his life.
- Nugey’s goal was the result of throwing the puck at the net. The Oilers need to shoot more, and it’s infinitely frustrating that people have been saying the same thing for years.
- Ben Scrivens was dialed in tonight. He bailed the Oilers out on more than one occasion.
- It was good to see Perron score again. I hope he’s getting back into last year’s form again. He’s a lot of fun to watch when he’s playing his best, and his goal was a beauty.
- This was the best game I’ve seen Leon Draisaitl play in a while. His vision and passing abilities are already at a high level.
- I really liked the Yakupov – Draisailt – Eberle line tonight. They were generating chances all night.
THE FACE PALMERS
- The Jets were crushing the Oilers up and down the ice, early in the first period. They were throwing the body around a lot.
- I’m pretty sure the fans in Winnipeg gave Scrivens the bronx cheer after he stopped a puck in the first period. *sigh*
- Jacob Trouba is an Oilers killer. Ridiculous.
- The Oilers had a hard time with the Evander Kane – Dustin Byfuglien combo.
- Yakupov can’t buy a goal. The kid is working so hard and I feel for him, because you know how badly he wants to score.
- The Oilers gave up the tying goal with under 5 minutes to go. They need to be able to lock these games up.
- Eleven. Straight. Losses.
BEST OF THE TWEETS

@OilersNation When you lose 10 in a row, you can`t even win a blatant penalty call
